The Ashland Literary Festival, formerly the Ashland Book and Author Festival, is an annual event that celebrates the literary arts by bringing together authors, publishers, and community organizations from throughout the region. This event takes place at Hannon Library, at the heart of the Southern Oregon University campus, and draws in hundreds of participants and attendees each year.

The Spring Book Sale, a sale of surplus library books and films, will take place at Hannon Library this month. The sale begins on Wednesday, May 25, and will continue through the weekend. 

DATE & TIME: Wednesday, May 25th through Sunday, May 29th.
PLACE: Hannon Library Lobby

With incredible pricing and a variety of topics – most books are initially priced at $2.00 for hardcover and $1.00 for paperbound books. Prices will be reduced throughout the weekend, but don’t miss opening day to have the choice picks! There will be some great buys just in time for summer reading, and the sale will earn revenue for buying new books. A few books of exceptional value will be individually priced.

Students, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to check out Hannon Library’s Spring Book Sale to find that special book for yourself or someone else.

For more information, call the Circulation Desk 541-552-6860.

It’s 10:30 in the morning right now, and I’ve already heard more stories than I can count on my hands and toes. Every time we as humans communicate with each other, story is somehow part of the process, whether it’s celebrity gossip over the water cooler, or hearing about your younger sibling’s day at school.

On Thursday, May 12 at 4 PM, world renowned literary artist, Tod Davies, is coming to the SOU Hannon Library, to talk about story, its impact on our culture, and why we need new ones now more than ever.

Davies’ open discussions are notoriously rowdy so come prepared for a treat. Just to name a few of the many titles Davies holds, she is the screenwriter for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,  the producer of Revengers Tragedy, the author of The History of Arcadia and Jam Today series, and the editorial director of Exterminating Angel Press.

This event is free and open to the public. This discussion is part of the Friends of Hannon Library event series, a yearlong collection of speakers presenting at Hannon Library to enlighten students and the Rogue Valley community. To learn more about the series click here.
